I used to buy a lot from 7-dayshop but have been disappointed with many items recently. I hope this one holds what it promises.

I've got the 128GB version, and it gets very hot and stalls a lot during copying, enough that the overall performance is only slightly better than my other 128GB red my memory stick. I've done lots of experimentation and the results are the same whether large or small files are concerned and it happens when connected via a USB3 hub. I suspect it's the heat that causes the stalling, but it's hard to prove anything.

I bought 2 of the 128GB version and I can confirm that mine stall during large copies as well.

I bought the 128GB earlier this year when it dropped to £35 and have not regretted it, the write speed is amazing, 70mb/s+.

Ordered another 128GB yesterday as the current one permanently sits in the TV's USB, got an email from 7 day shop with this deal and bought 2x 64GB.

This may be the fastest 64GB stick for this price.

Never had any stalling or heat issues (touch wood), the only negative is the you'll easily lose the cap.

I've now bought three of the 64GB USB 3.0 Grixxers and they've all proved to be well made and very fast. They come formatted as FAT 32 but can easily be changed to exFat or NTFS in Windows 8.1. I have tested them all in a modern PC and a brand new USB 3.0 laptop. I also have no problems using the drives with my Panasonic TV or my Minix Android TV box. Both ATTO and CrystalDiskMark show max reads of 133 MB/s and max writes of 70 MB/s across a wide range of larger file sizes. These speeds correspond with the real usage speed when moving files around in windows 8.1. I have not experienced any kind of stuttering and have filled and emptied the drives several times to test data integrity. They are small enough to fit in tight spaces without blocking adjacent ports and their aluminum body only get mildly warm even in heavy use.

Grixx drives seem to me to be excellent value for money, although naturally I can't comment on their longevity. I see no reason to believe they will not last as well as other brands as they have a decent memory controller (advanced system information recognizes them as Innostor based pen drives) and are not at all prone to overheating. Good luck Hotdealers.
